The Pistons are in need of more size and they will add it next week in the form of Slava Kravtsov, a 7-footer from the Urkaine. Kravtsov is an athletic shot-blocker who played for Pistons assistant coach Bran Hill on the Ukranian national team. He will turn 25 years old next month and adds another rim protecting element to a roster that greatly needs it. Kravtsov went undrafted in 2009 and then played for the Celtics in summer league in 2010. He has bulked up and improved his offensive game over the last two years, according to scouts.

Pistons president Joe Dumars confirmed the negotiations in a statement Monday.

“We are engaged in negotiations with Vyacheslav Kravtsov and will enter into a player contract when the moratorium period ends,” he said in the statement.
This puts the Pistons roster at the maximu right now of 15 players.

That does not include Ben Wallace.
